Which Cruise Ships Have You Been On?

Sat Jul 01, 2006 7:26 pm

Having just returned from escorting a fam-trip / seminar at sea onboard Marco Polo, thought it would be interesting to see who has sailed or visited what.

Marco Polo was great. So much better than i thought. Sometimes, I dont need 15 restaurants or rock - climbing walls. Just good food and wine, great service, a comfortable bed, and interesting places to visit, in this case, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Klaipeda (Lithuania), Ronne (Denmark) and Copenhagen. I love the teak decks, the fact it was a "real ship" with slightly sloping decks, and that it has probably sailed round the world more times than I have had hot dinners. Yes the age on board was pretty old, but there were a few "young-uns" on board so the Charleston Lounge was the nightclub until the small hours most nights!

I want pictures though.. lots of pictures. Apologies in advance to dial-up users, but I want to see where people have been (oo-er!)

So, my picture-fest is as follows:

Marco Polo


Norwegian Jewel

Norwegian Dawn (with her "smile")


Norwegian Sun


P&O Aurora

P&O Oriana

Think thats it. Now your turn.

Can't seem to find much on this ship - I do know it retired and was moored in Vancouver (I think) for conversion to a floating hotel, caught fire and was scrapped . . . early 1970s.

Any feedback would be cool, if u can differentiate between all the cruises you have been on!

I have taken one cruise--in 2001 on Carnival's Fascination.

In June 2001, Mom and I took a mother-son bonding trip to Florida (which included a 3-night Carnival cruise to the Bahamas), courtesy of a promotion by a timeshare company (RCI) who operates in Florida. We flew TWA (DAY-STL-MCO) roundtrip, spent a few days in Orlando and then a few days in Fort Lauderdale before boarding our ship, Fascination, at the Carnival pier in the Port of Miami.

Mom and I had a great time aboard Fascination, and had an interesting table waiter in the Sensation restaurant and interesting tablemates. We have a photo album full of photos from the trip, and I have the most unusual photo--a photo of me taken next to a feather-clad Vegas-style show girl!

(Ever heard of RCI? They operate promotional sweepstakes prize trips to Florida, where they try to sell you a timeshare condominium on the beach in Fort Lauderdale. We won one of those trips, and they tried to sell me a timeshare!)

Usually, our family "cruise" is a canoe trip down the channels at Chain-O'-Lakes State Park in Indiana!  wink

Well its kinda 'informal' for those people who dont want to dress up, we found it bad as everything basically came at a charge, even to eat in the proper a la carte restaurant which was a disgrace.
We wouldnt go on that, nor the Ocean Village as they are informal, and we pay the same price for cruises that include everything.

End of the day its up to you which you choose, i myself, prefer the more formal ships which include everything, and you get what you pay for, rather than having to pay extra for things that with other ships, you get included

All the best

Royal Caribbean

Jewel of the Seas (12 night Scandinavia and Russia cruise, July 2005)

Harwich - At Sea - Oslo - Copenhagen - At Sea - Stockholm - Helsinki - St. Ptersburg x 2 - Tallinn - At Sea - At Sea - Harwich

This was an awesome vacation, especially since my family used miles to fly Virgin Atlantic Upper Class JFK-LHR round-trip, and we spent a few days in London before the actual cruise. My dad also knew the captain, so we got a few perks as well. Can you say free wine and a trip up to the bridge as we sailed out of Tallinn?  bigthumbsup 


Celebrity

Constellation (7 night Southern Caribbean, March 2003)

San Juan - Catalina Island/Casa de Campo - At Sea - Barbados - St. Lucia - Antigua - St. Thomas - San Juan


Carnival

Sensation (7 night Eastern Caribbean Christmas Cuise, December 1997 I think)

Miami - At Sea - San Juan - St. Thomas - St. Marteen - At Sea - At Sea - Miami


Actually, I have been on a lot more ships than that too. My dad is a Harbour Pilot in Key West, Florida, so were were regularly invited by the captains of the the ships to come on board while it was in port to get a tour of the ship, eat, and look around on our own. I have boarded RCCL, Celebrity, Holland America, Princess, Disney, and Norwegian ships, just to name a few. There were many that I didn't want to get off...  Wink

My first cruise was on Aegean Dolphin. Don't remember much about it, except that my mum and I were trapped in an elevator for hours due to a power outage!

Later, I went on a good part of Costa's fleet 1992-1997:

Eugenio Costa 2x (Greek Islands - from Venice)
Daphne(Spain, Morocco, Canary Islands - from Genoa)
Costa Allegra 3x (Norwegian Fjords up to the Svalbard Islands, and Baltic Sea, all from Amsterdam)
Costa Classica (Greek Islands - from Venice)
Costa Riviera (Eastern Mediterranean Sea - leaving from Savona)

I haven't been on a cruise ship in 10 years now!

Celebrity Zenith (Caribbean)

I embarked on the Pride of Hawaii's 3rd commercial trip about 2 weeks ago. It was great a brand new ship with a few good amenities. The guys over at Norwegian were kind enough to allow us to see the Mexico-Argentina game in a bar where they have a big screen. We were 10 Mexicans out of 2200 passengers.

You're docked in SKAGWAY, ALASKA in that photo. Zip Code 99840. Telephone prefix: 907-983   

How do I know . . . .well, ermmm, I grew up there.

Please note the famous White Pass and Yukon Train to the extreme left of the photo . . . the paint on the rocks on the hillside just above the train are the names and crests of Cruise Ships and lines that stop in Skagway. The ship is moored at the White Pass dock . . .

I am really glad you enjoyed the trip to Alaska . . . we have a beautiful place here . . . I, for one, enjoy sharing it . . .

I've only ever been on the QE2 for 1 night and a day, departing from the cruiseship piers in NYC. The ship basically just had to leave US Coastal waters so they could serve alcohol or open up the casinos, don't remember which one. It was some corporate event I accompanied my dad to and the ship was pretty damn empty during conferences; I kind of just wandered around aimlessly.

Sea Princess. It was a nice ship, my first cruise and it was only a year old at the time.

Sun Princess, It is a sister ship to the above but this time it was in desperate need of repair. The sea water and constant "people" abuse had worn this ship down. Very disappointed as the overhaul was long overdue.

Voyageur of the Seas, At the time it was the biggest thing out there. Skating rink, rock climbing wall. Loved that ship.

Radiance of the Seas, best ship thus far. Loved the layout and was great for the Alaskan cruise i was on.  Wink

If you want/need any further details, IM me i'll be more than happy to discuss.  smile

The Jewel of the Seas, which I was on for my Scandinavia cruise, is basically the same thing, and I agree wholeheartedly about the layout being excellent. Although it carried 2,500 passengers, and I was on a full cruise, it did not feel like there were that many on board - maybe a little over 2,000.

My favorite area of the ship was the Colony Club in the aft. It was an awesome spot to sit and watch the world glide by. Oh, and the self-leveling pool tables they had in there were pretty cool too.  Wink

Ugh, it's a travesty. I knew she probably wouldn't return to service after the boiler explosion, but I had hopes she'd become a seaside hotel somewhere.

The Norway was my first cruise experience ever - Spring, 1987.

Update on the Norway....


Saw an article in a newspaper (can't remember which one though) which stated that the local government doesn't want to accept her for scrapping due to the amount of asbestos on board.

On a brighter note, work on the SS United States project continues...

Took a trip with my family back in 2000 on a Disney Cruise  Smile . We went on the Disney Wonder....beautiful ship and I have to say that I was very impressed with Disney Cruise Line.

I thought they'd had that worked out?

That's why the ship was towed to the coast off Alang . . .  scratchchin .

Now what I wonder?

Maritime Matters won't have an update until 7/9 . . . they're 'taking a break'.

Organisation in the Middle East may be buying the ship and turning into a floating hotel. Apparently it was all over the papers in Dubai....
